I have recently installed the standalone generator. All seems fine so far, however as the title suggests the crawler is interrupted every few minutes as the browser times outs. The pages are being indexed during each crawl attempt. Currently indexed 7000+ pages, with another 7000+ to go. Even though I select the "run in background" option it is interrupted.
Another issue which may be related - I never see the information of the crawl status. The page never loads, and all I see is:
"Please wait. Sitemap generation in progress...
Please note! The script will run in the background until completion, even if browser window is closed.
Any ideas, it is really slow having to restart the crawl every few minutes.
